We are less than two miles away from the world renowned Baptist Hospital, less than five miles to South Miami and Larkin Hospitals less than 6 miles to Miami Children’s and Kendall Regional Hospitals. We have easy access to all major expressways in the area. Surrounding us are several walking trails, local bicycle routes, parks and The Killian Greens Golf Club, “open to the public", within walking distance. We are 15 miles from the entrance of the Everglades, 25 miles from the Florida Keys, 16 miles to Miami Beach and 10 miles to Key Biscayne. For those interested in flying, we are 4 miles from the Tamiami Airport. Our home offers a beautiful pool area with large gazebo, lounge chairs, outdoor furniture, BBQ and smoker.
Greater Miami is very spread out. Our advice to get the most out of your trip is to rent your own car. Car rental at the airport is more expensive than renting at a national car rental location outside the airport. We have several locations within 3 miles of our home and can give you information if requested. If renting a car is not your thing we have easy access to public transportation. The local bus stop is .2 mile from our home about a 12 minute easy walk. If you need further information on the public transportation system go to (URL HIDDEN)
There is plenty of free parking in our secure private gated driveway. I am a native Miamian's therefore know all that our fine city has to offer. Both my husband and I are fluent in English and Spanish. We are available for taking you shopping or dropping you off and picking you up at your destination of choice*(URL HIDDEN) At Killian Acre we have had travelers from all parts of the world and something we have found most rewarding is cooking and sharing recipes from our countries. I cook my Cuban dishes and our guest theirs. In this relaxed environment we really learn how much we are all alike. Of course this is not required, it’s just something we enjoy and our guests are welcome to participate.

We are semi-retired and love meeting new people. Our children are all out of the nest leaving us with tons of energy to burn. We are active and energetic, love the outdoors, long walks, bike riding, working out and riding our motorcycles. Our kitchen is used daily since we love cooking and eating good food. Of course being from Miami and Cuba we love a tropical style of living, the beach, water sports, tropical fruits, exotic plants and flowers. My husband and I also love music and art , we enjoy local concerts and support the local art community.
